ONLINE SYSTEM USERS: DID YOU FILE A PRE-COMPLAINT INQUIRY OR REQUEST A RIGHT TO SUE OR PUBLIC RECORD ON OCTOBER 30, 2014 BETWEEN 8:00 A.M. AND 11:00 A.M.? If so, the DFEH Case Management System service provider experienced a system interruption that may have affected your request. To ensure that your Pre-Complaint Inquiry, Right to Sue request or Public Records Act request is fully processed, please resubmit. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, please contact the Communications Center at (800) 884-1684.


To File a Pre-Complaint Inquiry you may select one of the following methods:

    If you have a disability that prevents you from submitting a written pre-complaint form on-line, by mail, or email, the DFEH can assist you by scribing your pre-complaint by phone or for individuals who communicate by American Sign Language through the relay system. Contact the Communication Center 800-884-1684 (voice) or 800-700-2320 (TTY) or by email to contact.center@dfeh.ca.gov to schedule an appointment.

    The DFEH will continue to accept online complaint filings for persons who do not wish for the DFEH to investigate their complaint.  Instead, request an immediate Right to Sue.
